STEAMPUNK!

Hi, Folks . . . have you gotten on board with the Steampunk genre?
I've been intrigued by it for awhile now and decided to step waaay out of my comfort zone to dabble a bit.  While browsing through the craft magazines at Barnes and Noble, I saw the cover of the Sept/Oct issue of Cloth*Paper*Scissors and had to take a closer look.  Doll artist Paula Nerhus has created some very cute, interesting steampunk art dolls and gives instructions on how to make them in this issue.  I have never worked with clay, so it became a big labor intensive project for me, but finally finished this dolly last night.  I already had paint, fabric and many doodads that qualified as steampunk accessories, so all I had to purchase was the paper clay and I was ready to go.  Now, if I intend to add dolls to my ever growing list of creative endeavors, I need to establish my own "look".  But Ms. Nerhus provided the inspiration to step away from what I'm comfortable with, so thanks, Paula.

  10. Sue Ann, I love this doll!!! It is wonderful. I love all othe "doodads" you have used. I am very intrigued by the steampunk genre, and I think I'd like to do something with it in my art, but it seems somehow out of reach...You have done a wonderful job with it as it seems to flow seamlessly from your wonderful classic and vintage style bears
